Jackson hasn't lost a step.
Janet Jackson continues to build upon her already storied legacy. The Jackson sister dropped off a new single called "Made For Now" featuring Daddy Yankee earlier this week, and the duo decided to take their talents to the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. It was Jackson's first late-night appearance in 14 years.
Unlike most performers, Jackson took over the entire set. She remodeled the stage with dazzling set pieces, and brought along a crew of dancers and musicians to complete the performance. Much like the music video, Jackson uses dances from Ghana, Nigeria, Grenada, Trinidad, and the United States to give the performance a worldly vibe.
In an interview withiHeartRadio, Jackson revealed that she has had a passion for Latin music for some time. "I've always loved Latin music, and obviously, the African music is there and always been an influence," she stated. "Coming from what Daddy Yankee does in reggaeton, it's inspiration. It's reggae music, which brings you back to the African vibe, the whole bit. It was really nice working with him. Growing up with different bodies of music [and] having so many kids in the family, I've been fortunate enough to have an eclectic library of music. [I'm] just doing something different that once again has been a love of mine, but still trying to do different things."
